Today is the deadline for our Staff Lead Team to turn in our annual goals. I love dreaming. I need goals. They are related but different. Don’t treat goals like dreams.

Goals are useless when . . . 

. . . you use them to dream. You can write down “lose 25lbs. this year” but unless you have a plan of action to eat less and exercise more you’re only writing words on paper. Goals are useless motivators.

Goals are helpful when . . . 

. . . you use them to focus. Goals clear away all that you could do and identify what you will do. Goals are dreams wearing work clothes.

Our conversation will be better if you participate.
